Forum: GratefulDead Subject: "the days bewteen"

The host of the local dead radio show calls the time(dates in August)between garcia's birthday and his death "the days between" he also said that most heads use this expression. Is that true? I only know it because he mentioned it.

I've never heard it. I love the song though.

Are there any versions that really stand out?

Funny you should ask. I just now was listening to the Jam into Days In Between > Days In Between off the So Many Roads Album. Sorry, I don't have the info, but it feels as if its a studio rehearsal. Highly recommended.

There is one from Nassau from either 93 or 94 that is fantastic. It's a haunting tune.

We (dire and I) are on completely opposite ends of the spectrum with regard to our opinions about the song. I think it's absolutely one Hunter's very best, mature and introspective, the kind of writing that can only come from a lifetime of keen observation. After writing songs for so many years about gambling, drinking, and hard-luck drifters, he took a big risk in baring a lot more of his soul than what we were accustomed to hearing from him. Jerry's melody shows remarkable constraint, as well, displaying his own growth over time as a composer. Maybe more than anything else, though, I think it was especially wise for them to call the song Days Between, as opposed to its title in this thread, days bewteen. I don't think bewteen is actually even a real word.

i can totally respect your viewpoint bryan and totally understand what you are saying even though i really dont feel it the lyrics as you do, nor do i hear it in the melody. another wonderful thing about agreeing to disagree. for whatever reason, this song has never "touched" me in any way - it must be just "me" that doesnt get it - i dont know

The only version I've heard is from So Many Roads...and wasn't that a rehearsal without Bobby? I thought it was a good vehicle for Garcia, just not in a Stadium style venue...it just seemed kind of bittersweet to me on the album...I guess after seeing what all went down it kind of made me feel a little smaller...make sense?

maybe i just need to give it another shot because i just never "got" the tune at all - and believe me i tried. again, i know i am in a serious minority here (and that is ok) - but i just think it is a very very weak song

Hi sir: I'm kind of surprised you dont like this tune. But like it or not, it cannot be called either "cheesy" or "melodramatic." If anything, it is sincere.

sir???? are you sure you responded to the right post - lol.


i agree that it may indeed be sincere - but the lyrics do seem to be somewhat melodramatic to my mind. i dont think it is particularly well written either - i much prefer the lyrical structure of lazy river road, through granted the meaning is not intended to be as deep.

I concur - yawn. Never did it for me. I agree with someone the other week that talked about Hunter's "muse" abandoning him at a certain point. Sorry.

Opened my Forum emails this AM and found this eloquently-worded reply from you. Reading your stuff last night, it had the feel of a man who'd emptied a few bottles, and I was looking forward to a beery bite from the wolf. Next time, I'll try not be so prosaic and we can get some really ugly banter started.

Good morning, Bryan. I hope you’re doing well today. I never really encountered Days Between as a Grateful Dead song. It first really brought itself to my attention in a Phil and Friends show.

http://www.archive.org/details/1999-04-17.paf.sbd.miller.25297.sbeok.flacf

It’s such a heartfelt performance that it just pulled me up short first time I heard it coming through the speakers. I just had to stop everything and listen. I think Phil’s unaffectedly honest non-singing just works perfectly here. It’s painfully easy to imagine how a more showy performer would absolutely ruin this song.

See what you think anyway.

Man, it is just so cool to start my day with a little exchange between (bewteen?) myself and somebody on the other side of the world.

Hiya, rob. I will put that link on the back burner for now because I have to head out the door to work, but thanks!

Glad you enjoyed it! if you're listening to any more of that show Kimock's It's Up to You and the cover of My Favorite Things are both absolutely outstanding. I started downloading Phil stuff after the soundboards vanished and I was looking for things to burn and I've never regretted any of it. I know what you mean about some of the vocals being a bit wayward here and there but the musical talent Phil surrounds himself with is, by and large, stellar.

it's a mood kinda thing with that tune to say the least. I grew to like it and appreciate it. however the first time I saw it was a horrible saturday show in vegas. 110 degrees, shitty short first set. Second set is just as bad then I get hit with that tune. Tough day all around.
